Legendary Disciplines Releases Two Meditation Albums

Former NFL tight end Eric Johnson and martial arts master Matthew Cohen launch new wellness platform Legendary Disciplines and release two free meditation albums featuring Foo Fighters’ Rami Jaffee, P!nk’s violinist Jessy Greene and renowned masters of wellness


Los Angeles, CA (December 18, 2020) - Legendary Disciplines, a new mind-body wellness content platform and media company that offers both live and on-demand classes from world-class teachers and coaches, launched today worldwide and released two meditation albums as a gift to users for the holidays. The platform curates a variety of practices to help users cultivate energy and learn to combine various disciplines to optimize mind-body health.


“When I was playing pro football, the pressure to perform and stay healthy and injury-free made me very creative in finding solutions to raise my game and recover.  I needed a sharp mindset and more energy on and off the field.  I found that the combination of meditation, yoga, and alternative mind-body disciplines made me the strongest and allowed me to drop into ‘the zone’ more easily,” said co-founder and former San Francisco 49er and New Orleans Saints, Eric Johnson.


Johnson partnered with thirty-year internal martial arts master, Matthew Cohen, to create the platform.  Cohen is considered one of the leading martial arts and qigong (energy cultivation) teachers in the world and has studied with master teachers from many different disciplines.  “People are looking for ways to feel better physically, mentally, and emotionally.  We offer solutions from both time-tested and cutting-edge practices,” says co-founder Matthew Cohen.  


The company’s goal is to be a single, 360-degree destination for wellness, bringing master teachers and experts together to educate and coach users to take their physical health and mindset into their own hands, and to harness their own energy to feel better.  Backed by scientific data and an advisory board of health professionals, the company will release an app in early 2021 that will personalize user experience through offering unique combinations of high-quality classes in sports training, life coaching, yoga, qigong, meditation, tai chi, boxing and more. In as little as ten minutes per day, a user can change their state, tune up, and increase awareness, energy levels, clarity, focus and joy.  


“Legendary Disciplines Meditations” features music by Rami Jaffee, the keyboardist for the Foo Fighters, and Jessy Greene, a classically trained composer and rock violinist for Pink, RZA, Post Malone and many more Grammy-winning artists.  It is mixed and mastered by Grammy-nominated engineer Bart Schoudle.  The project includes both an instrumental and a spoken word version with Legendary Disciplines’ experts: a life coach, a qigong master, an acupressurist, an acupuncturist, a Feldenkrais practitioner and a visualization coach.  Both albums are available on LegendaryDisciplines.com and all major music streaming services. 


“We believe that everyone should have access to high quality meditations during these uncertain times,” Cohen said. “We may not be physically seeing our families and friends for the holidays this year, but people can connect and feel their energy lifted mentally and emotionally by sharing and listening to these meditations.” 


New Orleans Saints hero, Steve Gleason, who has courageously lived with ALS for 9 years, and who was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor in 2019 for his ALS activism, wrote a vipassana meditation and recorded it in his own voice. Gleason’s meditation helps the listener bring awareness to the present moment.  As Gleason describes it, “[My condition] causes my mind to have thoughts and emotions of severe frustration and anguish. My meditation practice has helped me to understand my mind better and be productive, purposeful, and find meaning.”


Johnson said, “We invite people of all levels and experiences to try our mind/body classes that will open up vital energy and lead to a more peaceful, enriched and joyful experience. We believe the energy you need to live a legendary life is within you and we want to be the ones to help you access it.”
